How do I update my theme?

If you haven’t made any custom HTML changes to the theme, then all updates will automatically be pushed through to you and you don’t need to do anything.

If you have made changes, you will need to update manually. First make a backup of the changes you have made (this is important!). Then follow the instructions shown here. Once the theme has been refreshed you can then re-insert your custom changes.
